What's wrong with my gums and neck?

Since I was like.... well for as long as I can remember, I've had this really odd sensation of a feather being slowly and lightly being swept across my chin and neck. It comes for a few hours... (usually at night) and then it goes away for a few months. The last time I had it was when I was on vacation at the end of last month. (August) No doctor has ever been able to figure it out... though we went to neurologists, dentists, orthodontists, psychologists, my usual physician and practically every doctor one can think of that has anything to do with my problem area. However recently I found out that the problem is maybe in my gums. When I felt there, it had the exact same effect... (light feather slow sweep across) I don't know what the hell it can be and when I have it, I feel like crying my eyes out, though it doesn't hurt. Why me? What is it?

I know I have a lot of medical problems, but PLEASE HELP ME!

our necks are very sensitive, and our ear canals and the root if our teeth, run all together, and sometimes, an ear sensation is felt in your neck, or your teeth sensation is felt in your ear,.....it maybe that one of your teerhs roots, is too close to a neck nerve, so go see your dentist and maybe he can pin pinpoint the problem....

i actually found out it's in my gum and I feel it in my chin and neck. I pushed down on my gum with my tongue when I have it and it's there. And I've been to the dentist about it

no it comes and goes. Like I have it like a night every few months and then it comes back in a few months. It happened in August at the end. I want to prevent it from happening again

I'm sure it's not an imagined thing because it was so bad that I had to go to the clinic and go home from school. I was pacing around and crying for hours..... My mom drove me to doctors because they had never seen me with it before. That's the only time it happened during the day. It wakes me up at night too
